What Is a Wood Stove?
A wood stove is a freestanding heating unit that sits in an open part of your room—as opposed to inside a fireplace opening (like a fireplace insert). Just like other traditional fireplaces, a wood stove has a flue pipe that vents the fire’s smoke outside.
The Benefits of Installing a Wood Stove
There are many benefits to installing a wood stove in your home. For starters, most newer wood stove models are EPA-certified, which means they produce less or almost no smoke at all. In addition, they also require less firewood to operate.
Wood stoves are also very versatile—coming in a variety of sizes and models to suit your room or entire home’s unique heating and comfort needs.
Wood Stove Installation
If you don’t have an existing fireplace and chimney but you want to be able to enjoy fires in your home, a wood stove might be right for you! If you’re interested in a wood stove installation, it’s vital that your heating unit is installed correctly in order to prevent house fires, damage, and injury. Give yourself peace of mind by hiring a licensed and insured professional chimney company. We do it right the first time!
Wood Stove Cleaning
Just like any other type of fireplace, when you use your wood stove, the bi-products of the fire get deposited in your unit. Over time, these bi-products build up—causing your unit to operate less efficiently and also leaving you at risk for chimney fires.
Ideally, you should call for a wood stove cleaning before you plan to use your fireplace and chimney during the colder seasons—usually during the summer or early fall.
